Beamish Pit Village 7/7

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 3

The wooden building next to the winding house is from Ravensworth park Mine in Gateshead. Once the coal had been brought up to the surface and sorted and processed by staff inside the building here http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2016/12/28/coming-up-in-2017/ it was loaded into these Chaldron wagons for transporting to wherever it needed to be. More from Beamish in a few weeks time.

Primitive but a huge leap from what went before I suppose
Brian Walbey: Indeed, steam engine hauled not horses.
Open pit mining was used in my area. It left ugly scars.
Brian Walbey: Rouind where we've lived since 1989 was a coal mining area but nearly all traces of it have now gone except for one open pit mining place about 10 miles from us, this link shows you what has happened tp it now https://www.visitnationalforest.co.uk/view/?id=Sence-Valley-Forest-Park2 it is a lovely place to go and walk.

A great sense of history Brian.
Brian Walbey: I did wonder if these are originals refurbished rather than new builds.
They don't make em like that anymore!

They look so basic now but of course at the time they were probably very high tech.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Alan, not even couplings as we recognise them to be.

I like this wagon with the big wheels very much.
Brian Walbey: I did wonder if they are refurbished originals or new builds.
Nice composition here. My fav of all the pix is the one with the goats in it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
